Ghana: Companies Act 2019 receives President's assent

It is now over sixty years since Professor Gower was appointed to chair a commission on company law reform in Ghana, the product of which was the Companies Act 1963. A new company law framework, to replace the 1963 Act, was placed before Parliament last year: the Companies Bill 2018. In May this year, it was reported in the media that the Bill had been passed and the new company law framework - the Companies Act 2019 - would become law on receiving the President's assent: see here.

The Ghana Presidency website reports that the President gave his assent earlier this month: see here. A copy of the new Act has not yet been published on the Parliament website.
